General & Introductory

Charles A. DiMarzio

Fundamentals of Nonlinear Optics

Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Peter E. Powers University of Dayton, Ohio, USA

“... an excellent resource for teaching any student or scientist who needs to use optical systems. I particularly like the addition of MATLAB® scripts and functions. Highly recommended.”

“Peter Powers’s rigorous but simple description of a difficult field keeps the reader’s attention throughout. … The author’s writing style is refreshing and original. I expect that Fundamentals of Nonlinear Optics will fast become popular among students, professors, and professionals interested in basic and applied research in the field.”

Optics for Engineers

—Professor James C. Wyant, Dean of College of Optical Sciences, University of Arizona

“... clear, concise and highly readable. This is an excellent text.” —Professor Changhuei Yang, California Institute of Technology

“At last, a book on optics that is written with the practising engineer in mind. … covers all the important issues from basic theory through lasers and photodetectors to the vital topic of radiometry and measurement.” —Professor John Watson, Chair of Electrical Engineering and Optical Engineering, University of Aberdeen

This book presents the underlying concepts and their applications for engineers who need a practical understanding of how the basic principles of optics affect design decisions. Guiding readers through geometric optics and physical optics, the author includes numerous examples drawn from his experience in the design of laser radars and biomedical optics. • Covers radiometry and photometry, which are essential to determine the feasibility of a particular optical system • Contains a chapter on nonlinear optics, with emphasis on new application areas in microscopy • Incorporates extensive end-of-chapter problems, examples, and appendices to help readers solve real-world problems • Offers downloadable MATLAB code for solving typical optics problems • Highlights the most important and frequently used equations • Includes color figures and more than 500 illustrations

—Aristides Marcano, Physics Today, Vol. 65, October 2012

“... well written and up to date. … The problem sets at the end of each chapter reinforce and enhance the material presented, and may give students confidence in handling real-world problems.” —Reva Garg, Optics & Photonics News, September 2012

“... fills a longstanding need for a nonlinear optics textbook at an advanced college/introductory graduate level. One of its best features is inclusion of many of the subtleties that are often glossed over in other books on the subject. … Another excellent feature is the provision of a large number of problems at the end of each chapter.” —Mark Cronin-Golomb, Tufts University, Medford, Massachusetts, USA

“... a sound, logically presented introduction to the subject with good coverage.” —Malcolm Dunn, University of St. Andrews, Scotland

“... introduces key concepts in simplified terms, and then generalizes to realistic treatments that emphasize how the various equations are actually used in everyday practice. The diversity of specific topics, worked problems, and homework problems should make the book of interest to a wide audience.” —Jeff F. Young, University of British Columbia, Canada

“... contains details of derivations and practical implementation that are often missing from other texts.” —Marc Dignam, Queen’s University, Ontario, Canada
